Event Description:
Woolly Mammoths on St. Paul Island, Alaska Thursday, March 1, 7 – 8 p.m. Verona Public Library Learn the story of some of the last woolly mammoths on earth from Dr. John Williams, geography professor and faculty affiliate with the Center for Climatic Research, University of Wisconsin-Madison, at the Verona Public Library on Thursday, March 1, from 7 to 8 p.m. One of the last populations of woolly mammoths survived on tiny St. Paul Island, Alaska, thousands of years after other Ice Age animals died out. In 2013, a team working with Dr. Williams collected new data on the timing and causes of their extinction. The findings provide insight into the vulnerability of small populations to environmental change. Presented in partnership with the UW-Madison Speakers Bureau. The March Mammoth exhibit and presentations are the first events made possible and supported by the Verona Public Library Endowment Fund. All events are free and open to the public.

This presentation is part of March Mammoth, an exploration of the Ice Age world with special events for all ages at the Verona Public Library from March 1 through April 3. The March Mammoth exhibit features real and replica fossils, including life-size replicas of a giant woolly mammoth skull and a ferocious saber-toothed cat skeleton on display.
